I need to pass a list of accounts from JSP to servlet. In my Jsp a list box containing a list of values is present. Multiple selection is allowed. When multiple projects are selected, how do i pass this as a parameter to my servlet?? Help!

Can you not just put them in an arrayList and do request.setAttribute("accounts", your_arraylist)?

There are 10 types of people in this world - those who understand binary and those who don't.

The JSP presents a form that has a list box that allows multiple selections? The form on the JSP has an action that directs it to the servelt?
In the servlet just use the getParameterValues( ) method of the Request object. It returns an array of strings that are all of the values of any multi-valued parameters sent.

Hi smita ,
Use "getParameterValues" to get multiple values from a jsp page
I agree. Here's the link:
